Niloofar Shamloo is a painter who suddenly fell ill. She was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease ulcerative colitis. But doctors feared it could be the sign of something even worse, like pancreatic cancer. Using a confocal endomicroscope, doctors were able to give her a clean bill of health without having to resort to an laboratory invasive biopsy. With Cellvizio Optical Biopsy, Niloofar Shamloo was able to go back to her painting with peace of mind.
When diagnosing whether or not pancreatic cysts are cancerous, endoscopy with Cellvizio Optical Biopsy may provide more accurate information than the standard methods.
